Not all that shadowy or complex, but this doesn't detract from the game that much.
Someone needs to fire the architect behind the Shadow Complex. There are unsecured man-sized air vents everywhere, purple security doors easily disabled by a purple foam gun and electric death rays th...
Street Fighter IV
Street fighting, man.
There is an intrinsic quality of Street Fighter that accounts for its continuing popularity: beating the crap out of people is fun (in a game!), doubly so if it's your boastful friend who needs taken ...
Blast from the past.
Once upon a time, there was a game developer called Square Enix. After several years of inventing and refining the concept of the role-playing game with their Final Fantasy series, they produced the c...
Prince of Persia
The Fresh Prince of Persia: In West Arabia born and raised, on the platforms was where I spent most of my days
The current vogue among game developers is to resurrect old franchises with a shiny lick of high-definition paint. Some are successful like Tomb Raider and Fallout, while the less said about Turok the...
Time for something different.
Time. It is fleeting, it heals all wounds, it is either on your side or against you. Whatever the case we are a people obsessed with something we don't even fully understand, a fact immediately appare...
There's no life in this old hog.
Dear Sonic, We've been together for a long time now, but lately I feel like you've changed and you're no longer the same hedgehog I fell in love with all those years ago. We've been together throug...
Holding out for a hero.
Do you remember when games were easy to play? I had lots of fun playing Sonic with my Dad when I was five. Nowadays if I handed him a copy of Oblivion it would be like giving him a neuroanatomy textbo...
The best editing tools you've ever seen with mediocre implementation, but the Space stage alone is fantastic.
Drop the words 'evolution' or 'creationism' into a conversation and depending on the audience, there's a good chance that sparks and Bibles may fly. For a game that allegedly showcases evolution in al...
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Platinum)
Swan song for Snake? Metal Gear Solid 4 is convoluted, complicated and pretentious, but still a lot of fun.
There are two kinds of man in this world: those that look good with a moustache, and those that don't. Luckily elder statesman of gaming Solid Snake has joined the ranks of Mario, Tom Selleck and… tha...
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
When I watched the movie, there were no killer giraffes or Sugar Puffs. But who am I to argue with artistic licence?
Based on the smash-hit film, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is a rip-roaring adventure that'll take Indy across the globe in search of the greatest treasure of them all- the Holy Grail! Unfortunat...
It's just like being a real ninja! Only without all the sneaking, killing and presumably the fun that would ensue
The Ninja hails back from 1986, the year I was born. Back in those days, games didn't have things like polygons, bump-mapping, animation, or gameplay. In the Ninja you play the part of- well, a Ninja....
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
Forget Retro Evolved, this is Retro Perfected: dazzling, mind-blowing and more addictive than ever.
It's two in the morning. You will be getting up in four hours to get ready for work. You're hunched over a controller shooting streams of bullets at nondescript, faceless enemies that somehow evoke mo...
Lost: Via Domus
Everything happens for a reason. In the case of Lost: Via Domus, this reason was money, but it's still a treat for fans
Lost is a divisive TV series if ever there was one. You've either been glued to your screen since the first episode, or thought it was pretentious rubbish. It's lucky that I fit neatly into the "self-...
Harder than sucking an apple through a straw, yet still compelling and with a fantastic art style
Hi kids, Big Bird from Sesame Street here! This week's review is brought to you by the letter N- well, N+ actually, the latest obscure title to make it to Xbox Live Arcade. N is for ninja, our bell-bo...
If you don't love Rez HD, then you are incapable of happiness.
I loved the Sega Dreamcast, but apparently no-one else did, with the console being withdrawn after only a couple of years on the market. This may explain why its 2001 swan song, Rez, went largely unno...
Sonic Rush Adventure
Solid gameplay and excellent graphics make Sonic Rush Adventure a worthy, if predictable, sequel. But where's Naganuma?
Once upon a time, the only way to get a handheld Sonic fix was with the Sonic Advance series on the Game Boy. With their mediocre level design and bland gameplay, they were nowhere near as good as the...
In spite of its flaws, Mass Effect delivers on the hype and is one of the most enjoyable games of 2007.
Two years on from its release, the Xbox 360 is really beginning to hit its stride. Big titles that were announced in 2005 are finally being released and they don't come much bigger than Mass Effect, B...
